Demos & Tech Tips
Mathcad is the Industry Standard Software for Engineering Calculations. Mathcad combines the ease and familiarity of an engineering notebook with the powerful features of dedicated engineering calculations application.
PTC Mathcad for Load Resistance
This video demonstrates using PTC Mathcad to create calculations-related load resistance situations including: deflection of elastic straight beams based on length and load, cross-section of a beam, pre-stress beam design (from a real-world example), validation and verification of design worksheets.
PTC Mathcad for Power Distribution
This video demonstrates using PTC Mathcad to create calculations related to the design of power distribution systems. Such calculations require detailed analysis on criteria including voltage regulation, line power flow, transformer sizing, and harmonic distortion.
PTC Mathcad for Elasticity
This video demonstrates using PTC Mathcad to perform elasticity calculations such as computing maximum bending moments, computing the required cross section dimension of a beam, and designing a beam on a basis of ultimate strength.
PTC Mathcad 101
This demonstration for new users shows the main value propositions of PTC Mathcad: natural math notation, numeric and symbolic processing, unit support, graphing, and charting.
